Discolouration is a changed skin tone that is visible to the naked eye. They are usually the result of UV rays. Sometimes, however, a small spot on the skin can be the result of increasing the amount of not only the dye itself, but also the cells that produce it – melanocytes. Discolouration is intensified differently – from yellow-brown to dark-brown spots with good demarcation and irregular outlines. The changes may go away on their own or survive for many years and get worse as the skin is exposed to the sun.
There are a number of treatments to systematically remove discolouration.
The effects of the treatment depend on the severity of discolouration, their origin, protection used, medications taken, as well as individual factors.
